Favors Establishment of Fed

[Special DUpalch to The Call]
SACRAMESTO, Jan. '2*. — Scoring the
stale h^ard of railroad commissioners
for neglect in failing to file complaints
\u25a0\vijh liio intfeirstate commerce commis
sion against the high freight rates on
canned and dried fruits* recommending
as a necessity the formation of a cen
tral l>ody of all the deciduous fruit
shippers so as to secure proper di?tti-
of ill** produrt In the eastern
in: rkots. and demanding that action
be taken to secure a ptandardisatson of
fruit, the California deciduous fruit
growers' leajfiie today formally took
lif.- as a permanent body in one of the
liveliest meetings li^ld by fruitmen in
ih<- statt- of California.
l"our hundred fruit growers, fruit
Strippers and others^interested in the
business gathered hero in tho First
Congregational church to ratify the re
\u25a0pi.rt of the committee of 10 appointed
by State Horticultural Commissioner
Jeff »•>-. pursuant to the order of the
M«Jti- fruit prowcrs in convention at
Watxbnrfile l/st month.
Tnder the heading of matters of
Feiieral interest the convention spoke
its mjn'd in resolutions on subjects of
vjtrtl interest to the fruit industry. It
indorsed the work of the freight rate
committee, favored the establishment
cf n federal line of steamships on the
Pacific between Pacific coast points
ynd Panama and even took up the sub
ject <-f direct legislation aqd placed
the stamp of approval upon it.
Spice to the meeting was furnished
by K. D. Stephens of Sacramento, a
prominent fruit grower. He took the
leadership of. an insurgent band as
PO'in as Commissioner Jeffrey called
the meeting to order by opposing the
formation of the league on the ground
i!iat the work proposed by it would be
in conflict with that of the freight
rates committee of the Watsonvllle
tonvention and if formed would be a
reflection on the rates committee.
He attacked, the rule which placed
restrictions on speeches, insisting that
the 10 minute limit was a gag rule. He
•wound up the session with a lengthy
nr.d heated discussion with Colonel H.
Weinstock on the f. o. b. system of
shipping fruit and bared some of the
tactics of the corporation shippers.
itixiuTiox Biti\<;s Disciissidx
Th.- resolution that brought up the
discussion of the.f. o. b. system follows:
Resolved, that the deciduous fruit
growers demand that-the shipping
organizations, co-operative and
others, get together and arrange a
collective system of distribution in
order that the fruit may not be
torced into competition with Mself
in the eastern markets to the loss
«>t the grower, experience having
Khown tnat satisfactory results can
It.- obtained only when the distribu
tion is made from this end through
one channel.
Kesolved, further, that any ship
ping organization which shall de
cline to comply with this resolution '
lias not- the best interest of the
growers at heart.
Colonel H. Wolnsiock championed
I his resolution, stating that a single
organization could handle eastern ship
ments of fruit under a general system
of distribution, thus preventing ship
ments being made to common poinl^
where they would be in competition.
.Stephens answered Weinstock at
length, attacking the f. o. b.t system.
He said that the California fruit dis
tributors now control 70 per cent of
the shipments from California and
were unable to show the growers how
the eastern market, was bettered.
Should a concern ' control the entire
percentage he believed there was no
assurance that conditions would be im
proved. Stephens declared that not a
car of fruit was shipped out of Cali
fornia last y<ar f. o. b. in the strict
meaning of the system, the grower in
every case being hold responsible for
losses after he had apparently disposed
<>f his products to the incorporation.
This resolution was finally adopted
The league went alter the state board
«>C railroad commissioners, rodghshod
in h resolution which condemned the
commissioners for n«£lect of duty, al
though given special power by the last
legislature to act on excessive freight
i;*ios. After reciting instances of neg-
J.-ct in failing to lilc complaints with
the interstate commerce commission
regarding increased rates, in canned
and dried fruits, the resolution says:
•Resolved, that we consider that it is
the duty of the, state board of railroad
rrinirnissioners to proceed y with this
matter for and on behalf of the people
«>f llio state of California as being a
matter of public interest and of great
concern to the producing interests t»f
l!ie state of California." ;j-'.l:
Resolutions were also adopted asking
the next legislature to submit an
amendment to the constitution provid
ing for direct legislation 'through the
Initiative, referendum and recall; in
aorslnz a federal steamer line between
Pacific coast points and Panama; pledg
ing growers to a higher standard of
fruit for shipment cast and calling
upon ' the transcontinental lines to.
grant lower rates to deciduous fruit.
It was shown that although the fruit
pliipmonts have increased from 6,000
to 13,000 cars a year, the rate has de
creased but 3 per cent.
The committee responsible for these
resolutions consisted of G. E. Lawrence
of Ixtdi. Jsador. Jacobs of San Fran
cisco, A. R. Gallaway of Healdsburg-,
J. P. L>argitz of Arampo and CL H.
Rodgers of Watsonville.
The formation of the league was
effected at the morning session. Any
frt:it grower owning five acres of de
ciduous fruit, nuts or grapes, and any
company or association or shipper of
frcsti or dried fruit or nuts is entitled
to fhembership. but no person or firm
ran have more than one vote. The as
sessment was fixed at $1 in all cases.
Growers are. to pay 1 cent per acre
and .the shippers 10 cents per car
shipped, nil based on the 1909 business.
\u25a0Jinere were objections to some of these
features, but when the charter roll
tva* opened 121 members signed.
Commissioner Jeffrey was authorized
lo appoint an advisory committee of
SO to solicit members for the league.
*n executive committee of nine is to
!>»• chosen from this number to conduct
the /business of the leag-m\ employ
nanagrers and other necessary help.
